Rennes defender, Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik, has put an end to his international career with the lions at age 24 after being left out of the Cameroon squad for the World Cup in Brazil.
The defender expressed his bitterness after he was left out of the squad that is due to travel to Brazil for the World Cup.
He had the following to say: “I realize that there are plenty of shenanigans in the Cameroon team, and that will never change. I prefer to end my international career and concentrate fully on the club to become the defender I was.
“It may seem surprising, but the selection of Cameroon is full of bad things. I do not recognize myself in this team. I joined because I love the country of my parents, my ancestors. But it turns out that it is not at all as I would have imagined. I had heard bad things, but I did not think it was at this point.”
Born on July 3, 1989, the son of former Indomitable Lions player, André Kana-Biyik, is a played with the France under-21 team before deciding to join the Cameroon senior team in 2012.
Kana-Biyik began his career at Le Havre in 2005 and was promoted to the first team in 2008, he made his debut on February 22, 2008 against Dijon FCO in the Ligue 2 and on June 21, 2010, Kana-Biyik signed a four-year-deal with Rennes.
He has made a total of five appearances with the lions.
